Acquittal is a Swift Ending to Casey Anthony Case

Jurors find the Florida woman not guilty of first-degree murder or aggravated manslaughter in the 2008 death of her daughter Caylee, 2.
By Amy Pavuk and Bianca Prieto, Orlando Sentinel

July 5, 2011
Reporting from Orlando, Fla.–

The facts of the case were as awful as they were compelling: A little girl reported missing by her grandmother and found dead months later. A young mother accused of murder who sat silently behind the defendant's table as prosecutors described her partying lifestyle.


And its conclusion came swiftly. With the seven-week trial in session during the holiday weekend, the Casey Anthony jury got the case Monday – and reached a verdict Tuesday after deliberating for less than 11 hours.

Jurors acquitted Anthony of first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, as well as aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse. She was convicted of four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Anthony will be sentenced Thursday and faces up to four years in prison. But she could be released that day if she receives less than the maximum sentence and credit for time served. She could have faced the death penalty if convicted of murder.

Anthony, 25, wept after the clerk read the verdict. As soon as jurors left the courtroom, she tightly hugged defense lawyer Jose Baez, then the rest of her defense team.

"Casey did not murder Caylee; it's just that simple," Baez said.

Prosecutors sat solemnly in their seats, looking stunned. Prosecutor Jeff Ashton shook his head slightly from side to side.

Across the room, Anthony's father, George, wiped away tears. Without speaking to Anthony, he and his wife left the courtroom escorted by police while the judge thanked the jury.

"While the family may never know what has happened to Caylee Marie Anthony, they now have closure for this chapter of their life," the elder Anthonys said in a statement. "They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives."

Defense lawyer Cheney Mason lashed out at the media and legal pundits who have been following the case since 2008.

"I hope that this is a lesson to those of you that have indulged in media assassination the last three years," Mason said at a news conference.

Caylee disappeared in June 2008, and her grandmother reported her missing a month later. Her decomposed body was found that December in woods near the Anthony home. Duct tape was on the remains, but the coroner could not determine a cause of death.

Prosecutors contended that Caylee was suffocated with duct tape by a mother who loved to party. They said Anthony tattooed herself with the Italian words for "beautiful life" in the month her daughter was missing and crafted elaborate lies to mislead everyone, including her own parents. When Cindy Anthony asked where her granddaughter was, Casey Anthony said she had been taken by a babysitter – who proved to be nonexistent.

Anthony's lawyers contended that the toddler accidentally drowned in the family pool, and that her seemingly carefree mother in fact was hiding emotional distress caused by sexual abuse from her father, an allegation he denied.

Anthony did not testify.

The jurors – seven women, five men – declined to talk to the media, and the judge ordered their identities kept secret.

Because of the intense media attention in Orlando, jurors were brought in from the Tampa Bay area and sequestered for the trial, which began May 24.

I don't think justice has been served for this little girl, personally I don't believe that she accidentally drowned in the pool. I didn't follow the case so I suppose i don't really have the right to say much about it...

Just saw on Nancy Grace discussing the verdict, with her saying that famous moments where GUILTY people walked free and got away with it were O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, and MICHAEL JACKSON. WTEVERLOVINGF! How DARE SHE- still trying to slander a man's name where you have to be BRAINLESS DESK to not see the documents on his innocence. :pullhair :censored :ranting

*sigh* I have sent an e-mail.

I thought she was gonna be found guilty.
I dunno what happened to that sweet little face, but its really sad.
I dunno who did what, put tape where, said this or that.

What I AM sick of is the media comparing this to Michael.
I don't remember her name coming up in his trial, so his name should not be mentioned in her trial.
No respect, even in death.

I tried to be quiet, but Velez got my dander up yesterday. I tweeted her, saying that Michael is dead and has NOTHING to do with this. What I wanted to tweet was 'Michael ain't got shit to do with this,
so keep my man's name outta yo' mouth!'

Now Nancy 'heffa' Grace is naming all the guilty people who got away with crimes, and of course, she
named Michael, OJ, Robert Blake, blah blah blah, cackle cackle cackle...all she needs is a black
cauldron and a broom. I wish I could ask her, 'Have you always been this mean, or did it start when
someone dropped a house on your sister?'

I'm gonna be a good girl, but she is workin my last good nerve... :ranting

*Susie pulls her hair into a ponytail, takes off her earrings, puts on her gym shoes
and gets out the vaseline... :hitting :boxing :mjasskicking

Too bad there is no evidence to suggest that Michael molested that boy. OJ and Robert Blake are another story.

when it comes to Michael they don't seem to care that there is not evidence. The only thing that trial showed was how crazy that family is.
